In the ten years since her extraordinary debut novel, OUTLANDER, was published, Diana Gabaldon has entertained scores of listeners with her heart-stirring stories and remarkable characters. The four volumes of her New York Times bestselling saga, featuring eighteenth century Scotsman James Fraser and his twentieth century, time-traveling wife, Claire Randall, have nearly five million U.S. copies in print.
The story of OUTLANDER begins just after the Second World War, when a British field nurse named Claire Randall walked through a cleft stone in the Scottish highlands and was transported back some two hundred years to 1743.
Here now is THE FIERY CROSS, the eagerly awaited fifth volume in this remarkable, award-winning series of historical novels. The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser's wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy-a time-traveler's certain knowledge. To break his oath to the Crown will brand him a traitor; to keep it is certain doom. Jamie Fraser stands in the shadow of the fiery cross-a standard that leads nowhere but the bloody brink of war.
Crossing the boundaries of genre with its unrivaled storytelling, Diana Gabaldon's new novel is a gift both to her many loyal fans and to the lucky listeners who have yet to discover her.

The fiery cross, once used to summon Highland clans to war, now beckons readers to take up Diana Gabaldon's fifth installment in the Outlander series featuring the time-traveling Frasers. Historical fiction fans who have waited four long years since the publication of Drums of Autumn will thrill to Gabaldon's trademark detail and sensuality, both displayed liberally throughout the nearly 1,000 pages of The Fiery Cross. In this pre-Revolutionary War period, Claire Fraser and her husband, Jamie, have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in the bucolic beauty of North Carolina. But tensions both ancient and recent threaten not only Claire and James, but their daughter, Brianna, her new husband, Roger, and their infant son, Jemmy, as well as members of their clan. Gabaldon delivers on what she does best: poignant storylines, empathetic characters, meticulous detail, and searing passion. Savor every carefully chosen word, readers; it may be a long time until the next installment! --Alison TrinkleFrom the Back Cover:

“Leaving out the history, the time-travel and fantastical subplots, the wit and irony, battles and heroes and villains, what will keep loyal readers and attract new is this fine portrait of two immensely admirable and interesting characters.” -- The London Free Press
